News is beautiful

Wylie, Holloway and Osborne blog about infographics and photographs in newspapers and online journalism

By Catherine Wylie

The recent tsunami in Japan and the protest which took over London last Saturday have both produced pages and pages of copy. On top of that there has been hundreds of videos, live blogs and live tweets. But, for me, it was the photographs which proved to be the most powerful, and not surprisingly, the place to see the best variety was on  Mail Online.

Here I have picked two of the most powerful images for each story, but to see more photos of the Japanese tsunami and the London protest then you simply must go to Mail Online and scroll down their page for a feast of photography.

It is no wonder Mail Online is the most viewed news website when they are so consistent in their use of images to attract readers.
